Wasn't Lerner a member of the Steering Committee? He was certainly a member of the Executive Committee, as I was, and one of the great things about the FSM was that whatever the Steering Committee had to do by way of instant decision-making, there was always an Executive Committee meeting within a day or a week at most to okay or renounce or modify and give overall direction. The Steering Committee members always attended and took part in those discussions vigorously as individuals, not as a superior caucus versus the rest.
